of chicago. this year, now president obama addressed the same issue at his second inauguration. >> obama: our journey is not complete until all of our children from the streets of detroit to the hills of appalachia to the quiet lanes of newtown know that they are cared for and cherished and always safe from harm. >> jennifer: sadly our children are not safe from harm. in fact, a 15-year-old girl who performed at that inauguration was killed yesterday by a shooter in chicago. she was shot in the back as she huddled under a canopy in a park seeking protection from a rain storm. she was only a mile from the president's home on chicago's south side. unbelievable. and from the streets of chicago to the halls of congress the debate continued today as wayne lapierre testified in senate hearings on gun violence. a question to wayne lapierre, dick durbin pointed directly to chuck's gun store. >> purchasers buy the guns there and they end up in the hands of criminals in chicago. we have to put an end to this. mr. lapierre some of your colleagues tell me senator you don't get t

of an issue. >> obama is seeking political victory. obama doesn't care about enforcing existing law. so people say why will he enforce anything that is new. >> once again, limbaugh is clearly delusional. one of the reasons we need immigration reform is because there were a record number of deportations last year. president obama has presided over 1.5 million deportations in four years. it took w. eight years to deport 2 million people. but marco rubio still went on air with the peddler of lies to kick obama on immigration. >> obama is not going to be president forever. as long as the next four years may seem, he won't be president forever. we have to write laws with that in mind as well. >> president obama agrees with marco rubio and other senators on almost every aspect of immigration reform. but republicans are not doing this because they are interested in real reform. john mccain actually told us the truth. they are doing it so they can win elections. meanwhile, our current immigration fiasco takes a tremendous toll. now, listen to some of the callers on my radio show who told me how the cu

. president obama has issued 23 executive actions on gun violence. can you discuss the commonality between your organization, the nra, and the obama administration when it comes to finding ways to reduce gun violence? >> what we think works, and we support what works. i've talked about the eagle child safety program which would put more money into than anybody in the country. we support enforcing the federal gun laws on the books were under% of the time against drug -- 100% of the time against drug dealers, gangs with guns, felons with guns, and that works. you've got states like california where they send more inmates back to the streets and have to put more back in jail for new crimes guns -- committed against their citizens than any other state in the nation. new york state, too. the collapse of the fiscal situation in those states has also collapsed the criminal justice system in those states. the nra has always supported what works. we have 11,000 police instructors and we represent honest people all over this country. there are 25,000 violent crimes per week in this country. the inno
upon the secretary of state me and the obama and to finally issue the approval and grant the permitting process so that the keystone pipeline can move forward in our country can have a better opportunity for jobs. the american people can have a better chance for employment in our country can reduce reliance on oil from places that are so insecure. i hope this is a turning point. nebraska has cheated the opportunity for the keystone pipeline now to be approved. thank you. >> a couple questions. [inaudible] >> well, senator hagel has been at his hearing at. i think it is too early to predict conditions under which his nominations will be considered. he has visited a number of us. we've had a chance to discuss his positions privately and i were looking forward to taking a publicly and we'll see how it's going to be processed on the senate floor when it comes out of committee. [inaudible] >> on that issue, am unclear as to whether the majority leader wants to bring a gun measure to the floor. it will be to hand to determine whether receipt that issue on the floor, the judiciary committee to
looking at 2014, but 2016. around this issue. and engaging that obama coalition. for so long, the passion and enthusiasm had been on the gun lobby side and now you see on the gun control side. i think there had, i think, in some ways been a bit of an apprehension and linking sandy hook to the things going on in chicago for many, many years. over the last three years. 270 school-aged children in chicago have been gunned down. >> yeah. >> that's many, many, many sandy hooks and so i think this incident tragic as it is will in some ways link these two events and link what has been going on a lot of times in the cities around increase gun control and background checks to this larger conversation. we'll see, of course, obama in minneapolis, on monday. doing interesting things there. but again, i think the assault weapons ban, it will be a difficult climb. i think it is interesting and surprising that joe manchin is in this fight, at least in terms of the background checks and i think we have seen this energy now on the gun control side that we haven't seen. >> 92% of all americans in favor of
towards what's been a bitterly divided issue. the push is on as president obama calls for quick passage of immigration reform. >> we can't allow immigration reform to get bogged down in an endless debate. we have been debate thing a very long time. >> a golden ticket to life for a better life for my family. >> reporter: choosing nevada to unveil his plan where latinos make up close to 30% of the population, proposal includes a path to citizenship. >> if congress is unable to move forward in a timely fashion, i will send up a bill based on my proposal and insist that they vote on it right away. >> reporter: undocumented immigrants would have to register with the federal government and pay bonds and back taxes, undergo background checks but not before increased border security can be proven. illegal immigrants would receive green cards only after every lawful applicant has gone lou the process we shouldn't be rewarding those who violate the law. >> reporter: the president's re-election with 70% of the latino vote has resulted in a shift towards compromise. but some who watch the speech fe
between bebe and obama is cool and distant. >> rose: there is the factor did netanyahu campaign on issues concern to most reallies, focusing more on iran which is a concern but by not including a whole range of economic issues, and all the military role of the ultra-orthodox. >> yes, i think the ultra-orthodox and their place in israeli society is now come under a very different kind of scrut 93, and people are coming to a very different conclusion that a lot of the particular rights that they have, both what they do and what they don't do, are just not fair, and certainly that was what was important in the emergence of this party because they were saying "look, we've got to have the orthodox play their fair share pay a fair share and play a fair share in what's going "o." >> we should probably give some background. it's a complicated picture. there are two extremes of orthodox in the pick. there are religious nationalists who live in the settlements and live throughout israel why where-- if you'll forgive me-- where it matters. and they go to the military in increasing numbers. that's re
that but in the heat of campaign last year, secretary clinton and some of president obama's other advisers became kind of a lightning rod on this issue and i think john kerry's trying to move on from that but i think he does want to answer their questions when he's secretary of state. >> let's quickly transition here to the senate seat. we know that there's been a lot of talk about the former senator brown stepping in and also talk to run for governor. when's the latest word since you're on the ground in boston? >> i mean, right now everybody's waiting to hear what the governor will name as an interim replacement for john kerry assuming as we all do that he gets confirmed here quite quickly and then the game is on and i think you're going to have several democrat who is go for the nomination for the special election which will happen in the summer. and everybody's asking, will scott brown throw his hat in the ring, as well? i'm one of those who's 50/50 at this point. i think he did lose last fall to elizabeth warren and may want to run statewide in another way and that is for governor. >> ann, taking

routes to talk up the issue. hari is back with our look. >> sreenivasan: just eight days after president obama unveiled a sweeping proposal to address gun violence, senate democrats put forward a plan of their own that would renew a ban on assault weapons. the measure was introduced by california democrat dianne feinstein, who led the effort to pass the first ban in 1994. that legislation expired a decade later, and feinstein said it was past time to take action. >> we have done our best to craft a responsible bill to ban these assault weapons. guns that are designed for military use bought all over this country and often used for mass murder. >> sreenivasan: feinstein's proposal would ban the sale, transportation, importation or manufacturing of more than 150 specifically named firearms as well as certain semi-automatic rifles, handguns and shotguns; limit ammunition magazines to ten rounds; grandfather weapons legally owned on the date of enactment and, exempt over 900 weapons used for hunting or sporting activity. in response, the national rifle association released a statement that s
. president obama called for lawmakers to renew the ban after the massacre at sandy hook in newtown, connecticut. senator feinstein says the issue is also very personal for her. remember, she became mayor of san francisco in 1978 after a gunman shot and killed the mayor at city hall. >> once you have been through one of these episodes, once yous like, it isn't like the movies. it changes your view of weapons, i think. >> shepard: the assault weapons ban expired almost a decade ago and tonight a spokesman for the nra says there is no need to renew it because gun bans do not work. >>> shannon bream live in d.c what would this new bill do exactly. >> it would ban the sale, manufacture, transfer and importation of 157 specific guns, along with a broader group of other guns that would meet a new lower threshold for classifying a firearm as an assault weapon. there would be numerous bans on various high capacity magazines and beefed up background checks on the sale and transfer of all assault weapons. vice president joe biden said today assault weapons aren't necessary for personal prote
issues and challenges that i have seen in the entire time i've served on this committee, and i particularly welcome the new members in that regard. i'm very grateful to president obama for nominating me and entrusting me with this important responsibility, and i am particularly grateful to secretary clinton, senator mccain and senator warren for their introductions of me just now. i will not take it personally that this may be the one item in washington that seems to unite democrats and republicans to get me out of the senate quickly. secretary clinton, particularly, has served above and beyond the call of duty. i think everybody on this committee would agree. her service has been superb and we all thank her for a job well done, for her tireless efforts on behalf of our nation. she has set a very high mark for the stewardship of the state department and her commitment to country. and i can pledge to you that with the consent of the senate, i will do everything in my power, summon all my energy and focus to build on her record and on the president's vision. senator mccain, as he
is the meta thing hanging over this entire issue. >> do you think that's right, that the obama administration had a road to damascus moment where they came to learn to embrace this, or was it that they got this political pushback from lindsey graham and republicans -- >> i think that there is a certain amount of truth. i wouldn't call it a road to damascus moment. there's a certain amount of truth that the obama administration acquiesced to the late bush administration after the courts got done dismantling the more aggressive policies of the bush administration. they said we're going to keep some of this stuff. that's what happened at the national archives speech in 2009. but i think guantanamo is not an essential facility. we can safely house terrorists inside the united states no matter how dangerous they are. what happened with guantanamo is that the administration bungle eld t ed the politics and they decided they weren't going to prioritize this and it wasn't worth what they felt was losing other aspects of their agenda and democrats in congress got scared and basically said no, we're no
and president obama, do you think? >> bill certainly worked very hard for the president in the '08 general election. he also consulted with the white house on some of the economic issues and was very committed to, you know, being as good of a supporter as he possibly could, and they just got to know each other more than they ever had before. i don't think there had been an opportunity for them to do that before this last four years. >> well, it's been virtually a million miles and 112 countries and a lot of years and shared fun and we congratulate you. >> thank you very much, andrea. >> as we speak, the secretary is having lunch at the white house with the president. >>> chuck hagel's big hearing is tomorrow. that next. >>> later, the oscar-nominated documentary exposing the horrific scale of sexual violence in the military. >>> it's time for the your business entrepreneur of the week. justin's unique designs and attention to customers' fish gained him celebrity clientele. for more, watch "your business" sunday mornings at 7:30 on msnbc.

trade center we've held programs and hosted major national conversations on the toughest of these issues. for example, in april of 2012 john brennan asked to speak here to describe the legal -- around the obama administration drone program. the very thoughtful public discussion we had that day may have helped generate the administration simply be published counterterrorism playbook. we also hosted a national conversation last fall with cyber czar keith alexander, senator susan collins and anthony romero who is head of the aclu, and how to bring the public into the very difficult discussion on cyber. we addressed a range of issues and will cover some of this again today from privacy to the role of the department of homeland security. all of the participants in that national conversation, i know our secretary does, too, cyberattacks pose a potential catastrophic threat to u.s. infrastructure. i met janet napolitano of long ago. she knows what's coming. when she was a young associate in a phoenix law firm. she claims that she had a perm, but i have no memory. [laughter] since then she has b
used in that capacity by the obama administration. i do not agree with him on all of the issues. i was troubled by his attempts to negotiate with bashar assad, who was very little credibility. he first voted against the war in iraq, then voted for the surge that made it possible for us to rescue a failing situation. but i do not think he will truly for -- to truly make the foreign policy of the u.s. any more than hillary clinton really did. this is one of the most centralized foreign-policy positions of ever seeing with the president and a handful of close aides truly making those decisions. i think john carey will be a capable the plant carrying out those decisions. host: there will be a live hearing today. one of the nominees, chuck keiko, nominated to be the -- chuck heigl, nominated to be the defense secretary. what do you think about? guest: there is no question he has been outside the mainstream of the senate. do not get me wrong, his hair was them in vietnam is something everybody should respect and his many years of service in the country, something for which i have the mon
for answers on a number of key issues. bill: a revealing interview you had with congressman royce last evening. martha: when i remembered back president obama was picking secretary of state the first time around he was interested in the job. he was interested in the presidency as well nine years ago. this has to be a big day for him. he's been a senator for a longtime. this is a pretty big promotion. >> reporter: sure, and, you know, president obama said when he nominated senator kerry, and i think very accurately that senator kerry was essentially bread for this condition. his nats was a foreign service officer. he longed for this job for a longtime, and he didn't really make it secret that he really wanted to be secretary of state. and you see his wife next to him, theresa hines kerry. they have also signaled that this is a want, and he wanted to be chairman of the senate foreign relations committee because of his cant to b want to be involved in foreign affairs. this fits his personality, it's what he wants and it's expected that as long as he doesn't trip over himself in this hearing, and
not reality, but advocacy by people with agendas. one of the issues right now is that the president faces a number of shifting puzzle pieces around the globe. does that, in effect, mean that there cannot be an obama doctrine that applies globally? >> i think it's always helpful for a president and an administration to have a foreign policy and a philosophy about how to approach foreign policy, but you are right that even the greatest enunciation of strategy can be impacted by kind of the short-term retactical challenges that you have, and a really volatile world, whether it's the middle east. i chair a subcommittee that has all the middle east and all of south and central asia. very volatile regions of the world. >> i want to play one piece of sound. i mean, as far as this being a layup, as i said earlier, it seems to be his confirmation is all but assured. senator kerry did mention the use of drones. i thought this was really interesting. let's replay the sound from earlier this morning. >> president obama and every one of us here knows that american foreign policy is not defined by dron
this will be fair, make certain we won't do something that will put more pressure on the obama care system and on the medicaid system that we have. that's an issue that's been raised by the health care community. >> we take you back to the original sticking point. the president's proposals and what we're hearing from the bipartisan group in the senate. big difference, phrasing from senator mccain, prerequisite, to you have to have the secure border and vis-a-vie dick durbin, saying through a commission of folks watching the border, reinforcing security, et cetera. you have to have that in order to begin the pathway to citizen shup. do you agree that has to be an almost of t element of the plan? >> american people are sick of hearing about human trafficking, sex trafficking, drug trafficking, weapons trafficking. >> we have been hearing about this for so long. >> this is where some lessons should be learned. let's end illegalent trooe into the country, regardless of what the reason is. we have learned about some of the terrorist organizations that have encampments near our southern border a
-judge panel of the united states court of appeals for the district of columbia issued a decision that basically said the era of recess appointments is over. the three-judge court unanimously ruled that president obama on january 4, treft, made -- on january 4, 2012, made four recess appointments which were unconstitutional. and, therefore, said the court, these four individuals -- one has already gone from the nlrb. so two nlrb individuals were in the case that was before this court. hold their seats unconstitutionally. the chairman of the national labor relations board, nevertheless said in effect the nlrb is open for business. i respectfully suggest a different sign should go up. "help wanted. nominations needed." and that the two nlrb members whose recess appointments were unconstitutional should leave the court, because the decisions -- leave the nlrb, because the decisions in which they participated -- and there were 219 of them -- cannot be valid if they're challenged, just as this one decision was vacated, cannot be challenged because since they stwrurpbltly there -- they
